Hypericum - a code of practice Obsidian coast is a curatorial organisation / residency space etc. They have launched a really great initiative recently called Hypericum - a code of practice. The project is "a research project developing a collectively produced, ever-evolving code of practice for feminist, antiracist, anticolonial and environmentally sustainable arts organising". I think there will be public workshops throughout the programme, and the working group will publish some outcomes. In general it seems like a really nicely structured project - check it out on the link below!

Social Model of Disability The Social Model of Disability holds that a person isn’t 'disabled' because of their impairment, health condition, or the ways in which they may differ from what is commonly considered the medical 'norm'; rather it is the physical and attitudinal barriers in society – prejudice, lack of access adjustments and systemic exclusion – that disable people.
